The Pan-Atlantic University's Lagos Business School has redesigned its MBA program, according to the school's website.
The most substantial change is that the program has been shortened by three months, and can now be completed in 18 months. The school will also offer international exchange programs as elective options for MBA students.
Another new component is an "Action Learning" project, where "students will be required to review the operations of a selected small and medium enterprise (SME) and help design what will take the firm to the next level."
The redesigned MBA will also include several leadership seminars that will help with soft-skill development.
Changes have also been made to application requirements. Now, applicants must have at least three years of post-graduate work experience, instead of the one year that had previously been required. In addition to the work experience requirements, applicants must also score at least 550 on the GMAT or receive satisfactory performance on the university's admission test.
According to a statement from the school, the redesigned MBA program will help students prepare for "promising careers with local and multinational companies expanding their operations in emerging markets such as Nigeria, and equip them with an entrepreneurial mindset to make an impact in industry."
The changes are set to be implemented for the MBA program's September 2015 intake.
